Indonesia Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund

Summary

A 7.5 magnitude earthquake in Indonesia created a 15-foot tsunami, killing more than 400 people and displacing an untold number from their homes. This fund will provide relief to people impacted by the earthquake and tsunami in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine, in addition to longer-term recovery assistance to help residents. All donations to this fund will exclusively support disaster relief and recovery efforts in Indonesia.

Challenge

The shallow but powerful earthquake and tsunami struck off the coast of Indonesia on September 28, 2018, causing widespread damage to buildings and property. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors' immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for areas in Indonesia affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this disaster.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like this eruption. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
